Biennial native to temperate Europe and Asia . Extraordinary nutritive and blood-cleansing properties, used in combination with dandelion as a treatment for staph. Sow seed in spring directly in regular garden soil and harvest for the nutritive and blood-cleansing root that first year--like carrots. If digging is not your thing, take an old bale of wet hay and knock together four 1 x 4s like an empty-bottomed flat to fit right on top of the hay bale. Then fill this with garden soil and plant your burdock seeds in there. They will germinate and send their roots down into the hay.

Echinacea Purp-Echinacea purpurea seeds, organic: Echinacea purpurea Originally native to a wide band stretching from Michigan south to Louisiana, then west to Texas and Oklahoma, but currently uncommon in the wild. Widely cultivated. Our strain was derived from a rare wild collection and has been successfully and profitably cultivated for years here in the Williams Valley of Southern Oregon. It has not been intentionally modified or hybridized in any way from the original source, and therefore contains the rich spectrum of active chemicals found in the original wild plant. Medical activity as per E. angustifolia. On a plant-protection note, please consider that growing and using E. purpurea also takes the strain off wild populations of E. angustifolia. Cultivation: Sow seed in the early spring in flats outdoors or in the greenhouse, and transplant seedlings out to the garden or field in mid-spring (middle of May in our area). Starting earlier, and transplanting twice into progressively bigger containers will result in a much better rooted transplant, which will probably flower in the first year. It is fairly easy to seed this plant directly in the garden or field. Sow the seed shallowly in the early to mid-spring. Keep moist. Once the plants are up, you must stay on top of the weeds, and thin to 1 foot spacing after the second set of leaves has formed. E. purpurea likes full sun, plenty of water, and rich, limey soil. This is the species best suited to varied growing conditions, whether coastal or mountain, east or west. It is easy to grow, and produces on the average 1/2 pound of fresh root by the dormant period following the second year of growth. Plant 1 foot apart. Flowers 3 to 4 feet tall. Organically grown 200 seeds/pkt.

Elencampane-Elecampane, Magnificent seeds, organic: Inula magnifica Family: Asteraceae Herbaceous perennial. Native to Europe. Giant, coarse, aromatic leaves and multple upright stems bearing flowers colored yellow with dark centers, up to 6 inches across. The roots of "Magnificent" taste similar to what we call "Official" (that is, Inula helenium), but "Magnificent" is less root productive and not traditionally used. We've noticed the plants prefer partial shade and moist soils. Light-dependent germinator. Easy. Sow in early spring. Space plants 2 or 3 feet apart. Organically Grown 100 seeds/pkt.

Evening Primrose-Evening Primrose seeds, organic: Oenethera biennis Family: Onagraceae Self-seeding biennial. Native to Europe and North America. This herb is very drought tolerant, bravely producing bloom after yellow, mucilaginous bloom in the evenings, despite sun-baked conditions. The seed is high in gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an intermediate in the synthesis of prostaglandins. Some women report alleviation of PMS by eating the plant and the seeds. The flowers especially make a tasty addition to salads. Cultivation: Easy. Scatter seed on surface of disturbed soil in fall or early spring, or start on surface of flat and transplant. Seed requires exposure to light in order to germinate. Plant 12 inches apart. Flowers to 3 to 4 feet. Organically Grown 200 seeds/pkt

Flax, Brown-Flax, Brown seeds, organic: (Linseed) Linum usitatissimum Family: Linaceae
Annual. Native to temperate Europe and Asia. Flax is pretty in the garden, with the added advantage of yielding a valuable seed crop. Homegrown organic linseed is very tasty as an addition to breads or cereals, and since rancidity can be a problem, it is very nice to grow your own to assure that it is entirely fresh. If taken alone, supplement with plenty of water. Linseed is a swellable fiber loaded with oil and mucilage which soothe the intestinal tract and stimulate peristalsis. Cultivation: Easy to grow. Cultivate an area of good soil in the spring and strew the seed on the surface, working in with your fingers. Pat down soil surface and water. The plant grows best in a self-supporting patch, not in a carefully defined row. The distinctive sprouts appear quickly and tend to out-distance weeds, as they grow quite rapidly to 2 feet tall.

Organically grown 100 seeds/pkt.

Mustard, Black (Brassica nigra) Family: Brassicaceae Annual or over wintering annual, native to the Mediterranean . Black mustard is the most pungent of all mustard species, and is used in the production of specialty mustards. Black mustard oil is also an essential ingredient in Indian cuisine. Mustard owes its pungency to the presence of isothiocynates, the same compounds that give watercress, wasabi, and horseradish their kick. Although the plant does not fix atmospheric nitrogen, it does sequester nitrogen from the soil, which is then returned back to the soil when the plants senesce. Black mustard is allelopathic, effectively inhibiting growth of weeds when it is thickly sown. The main use of mustard as a cover crop is in orchards, where it is known to inhibit infestations of aphids and spider mites. In cold regions where fall-sown mustard winter-kills, the plant remains make a desirable mulch for growing spring vegetables. Mustard thrives in regular garden soil and withstands heavy or clay soils. In warm winter areas (above 20 ° F) Mustard may be sown from fall all the way through to early spring. In cold winter areas, it may be sown as a quick cover in the fall or as a spring crop. Sow 1/2 inch deep at the rate of 4 oz per 1,000 square feet.

The seed germinates readily, whether sown in the fall or early spring directly in the garden, or started first in flats and transplanted. Transplant or thin to 1 foot spacing.

Nettles is especially rich in trace minerals, potassium and the blood-like molecule known as chlorophyll. Wait until the little Nettles are four inches high or so, and snip them off. They must be lightly steamed to disarm their stinging hairs. Eat the Nettles, and drink the water in which they were steamed. Cultivation: Extra care. Sow in fall or very early spring for germ. in spring. To naturalize, transplant seedlings 6 inches apart to an area of dappled shade near running water. Grows to 4 feet.
